The "Flor Kantuta" communal bank is about to start its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana regional office. The group is made up of eight members and governed by a board of directors. Their treasurer is Señora Natividad. The members' businesses are varied and include: sewing vests, a general store, making traditional baby clothes, selling coca leaves, a variety store, making backpacks, macrame and woven blankets, and crafts.
This loan will benefit these micro businesspeople. Natividad is one of these people. She says that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago at the invitation of another member of the institution. She currently has a business running a general store. She has had this store for several years, and started it at the recommendation of her godmother who helped her to fit out the business.
This loan is for increasing capital (buying canned goods, sugar, and oil). She will acquire these goods from the wholesale sellers and later sell them in her store. This work allows her to make an income to support her family where possible. She is married and has five children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health clinic.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
